Nina Seale is a Zoology graduate from the University of Edinburgh starting a career in conservation and environment journalism. This website is a portfolio of her articles in the field of wildlife and conservation, as well as her travel blog and gallery for her art and photography projects.
Nina is currently working as a writer/editor for World Land Trust, a conservation NGO she has followed and supported for years. Previously she worked as a field guide in South Africa, after training with the Limpopo Field Guiding Academy, and writing about the lessons of the african bush in her South Africa Travel Blog. She has previously worked as an intern for WorkingAbroad in June 2014, whilst assisting with dolphin research in South Australia. She has visited the WorkingAbroad project with St Eustatius National Parks (STENAPA) on the island of St Eustatius in the Caribbean, and has written a blog filled with updates about the creatures, people and plants she has been working with on the island.
Nina has a passion for travel (one of the reasons she loves barn swallows so much!) and has enjoyed wonders from all the corners of the globe, from learning to dive in Oman, searching for the Aurora Borealis in Iceland, and birding in the Scottish Highlands, but she lost her heart to the African bush, as many do, when she first visited South Africa with her family in 2007.
She is a very enthusiastic writer, and was Editor of the student newspaper in Edinburgh after writing numerous news articles and features, predominantly focused on science and the environment.
